Codemasters has kicked off the week with a new trailer for the upcoming F1 2019. In it, players get a taste of what the game will look like on their own setups when it arrives next month.
The full video clocks in at just over a minute long. It crams a lot of content into that short run-time. Naturally there are a lot of beauty shots of this year’s Formula One field, like Verstappen just sliding his Red Bull wide in Brazil. The classic cars return too, including McLaren and Ferrari’s 1990 season entries. The F1-90 and MP4/5B will let players relive the famous Senna versus Prost rivalry, which will feature on the cover of the special Legends Edition of the game.
New this year is the introduction of the F2 feeder series. At launch, players will be able to access the 2018 lineup, including the drivers that have now found themselves in the big leagues, like Lando Norris. Shortly after release, Codemasters will add the 2019 roster of cars and drivers free of charge.
We recently sat down with an early build of F1 2019 to get under its skin. We found it a steady evolution over last year’s model in visuals and physics. The new F2 cars in particular should represent a new challenge for players, something lead handling designer David Greco backed up in our interview with him.
F1 2019 launches on PS4, XB1, and PC June 28. Those that pick up the Legends Edition will get three days’ of early access.
